2. Replace the wick with a new TIKI® Torch wick and position the wick with 3/4 inch exposed if in a standing torch. As a tabletop, the wick should be trimmed to 1/2 inch exposure. If you have an adjustable flame torch, the knob should be adjusted all the way down.
3. Trim as required.
4. Fill reservoir to fill line with TIKI® Brand Torch Fuel. If no fill line is present, fill reservoir 2/3 full.

4. Allow wick to become completely saturated with torch fuel before lighting, which takes approximately 5 minutes. Do not set wick height higher than ¾” above the top of the flame guard. Keep clothing, hair, and face away from flames when lighting.
Burn times vary by torch. All TIKI® Brand torches are designed to deliver 3+ hours of burn time when used with TIKI® Brand torch fuels.
If your torch won’t light, there may be water in the torch fuel or on the wick. Properly dispose of the torch fuel and replace the torch fuel and wick. Make sure the torch fuel is filled to the proper level and allow the wick to soak for 5 minutes before attempting to light.
1. Each torch comes with a snuffer cap to extinguish your TIKI® Brand torch.
2. Carefully place the snuffer cap completely over the wick and leave in place until the flame has been completely suffocated. For Adjustable Flame torches, align the notch in the snuffer with the shaft of the adjustment mechanism.
3. When the flame has been extinguished, remove the snuffer cap until the wick has cooled completely.
4. When the wick has cooled, replace the snuffer cap to protect the wick from the elements.
It is safe to leave TIKI® Brand torch fuel in the torches. Store torches in a secure space so they do not tip. Store fuel out of reach of children. It is safe to store torch fuel outside.
Fire Pits & Wood Packs
The center cone is designed to create optimal burning conditions and airflow. The cone is what helps the Wood Pack ignite quickly, burn evenly and deliver the predictable approximately 30 minute burn duration. You can place traditional firewood over the cone as well, up to 16 inches long so it fits within the Fire Pit bowl. If you will not be using a Wood Pack and want more room for firewood, you can start the fire without the cone (remove it before any burning begins). It can also be removed for cleaning.
Yes. For best results, use dry, seasoned wood that has been split and cut to a length of 16 inches or less, so it fits within the Fire Pit bowl.
Sort of. The Wood Pack is designed to maintain a full and consistent flame for approximately 30 minutes. If you desire more control over the flame size, you can use wood logs and add more or less based on preference.
Yes, if you follow all instructions, warnings, and good fire safety practices. If cooking over the Fire Pit and Wood Pack, wait until flames die down and the wood pellets begin to form glowing coals.
No, cooling time may vary depending on use. But in case of emergency, stand back at least 5 feet and spray with a garden hose to avoid hot steam and debris. Spray coals continuously for five minutes or until coals have cooled. Empty ash pan and dry the pit to ensure rust doesn’t form.

TIKI® Brand Fire Pits are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for up to 2 years from the date of purchase. You have to show that you have used the product under normal conditions and for its intended purpose in a residential backyard setting.

Once the Fire Pit has completely cooled, remove the center cone and carefully sweep ash inside the Fire Pit through the bottom holes. Then, pull out the ash pan by its handle and dispose of the ash per your local laws/regulations.
The pan should be emptied after every use.
If you used only TIKI® Brand Wood Packs, this should take approximately 6-8 hours and is designed to completely consume leaving minimal ash. If you used traditional firewood logs, times will vary depending on the amount of wood used and consumed. Be sure to clean out all ash to ensure there are no embers left before putting the cover on.
First, let it cool down completely. Empty the ash pan by pulling it out and safely disposing of ashes. Clean with dish soap or baking soda and rinse clean with water. Do not use oven cleaner or abrasive cleaners as they will damage the finish. Thoroughly dry the Fire Pit with a soft cloth to prevent rust from forming. Use the provided cover to protect the Fire Pit from the elements and store it for future use.
No, the Fire Pit should not be used closer than 15 feet to any walls, structures or buildings, and should not be placed on any combustible surface such as wood, dry grass, leaves or mulch. Flames may reach a height of 3 feet above the top of the Fire Pit. Further, the Fire Pit should not be used under a patio roof, any low hanging branches, trellises or overhangs of any kind, including covered porches.
The patent-pending TIKI® Wood Pack is made from wood pellets mixed with a starter fluid and sealed in the easy light bag. The pellets are made from sawdust that is sourced as a by-product from several manufacturing processes (lumber, window frames, hardwood flooring, etc.). The result is an energy-dense and sustainable way to light your fire.
Place the Wood Pack flat on the cone inside the Fire Pit and light each corner. The bag will burn quickly, spilling the wood pellets into the bottom of the Fire Pit. No need to stir; the fire will fill the Fire Pit within 5 minutes and remain for approximately 30 minutes. As the flames die down, add another Wood Pack for another 30 minutes of burn time, or add seasoned cut firewood.
No, simply light the bag in each corner to start the fire.
No, the irregularities in wood logs cause the snapping and crackling. The wood pellets in the Wood Pack don't contain the irregularities that are found in wood logs.
Very little. While wearing gloves, remove the Fire Pit from the box, remove the ash pan, place the foot ring on the ground where you want to place the Fire Pit, and screw the legs into the pre-threaded holes on the Fire Pit. It should take just a few minutes and all tools and hardware are provided. Re-insert the ash pan, make sure it's in a safe location, and fire it up!
The Wood Packs are for Fire Pit use only. They are not intended for grills, smokers, pellet burners, stoves or any other burning system.
The internal airflow system within the Fire Pit creates a low-smoke experience that ultimately is more enjoyable.
